Many businesses believe that government regulations require them to attend expensive, 3rd-party training programs for their workforce. This can be prohibitively expensive and very inefficient.

CertifyMe.net, an online forklift training and certification website, has introduced the world’s first online certification program for those seeking to train forklift operators. The program provides veteran forklift operators all the steps needed to train new forklift operators on the job and meets all the OSHA standards for safety compliance.
The program enables employers to create on-site training of forklift operators, saving them from expensive off-site programs that cost the business lost work, overtime hours and thousands of dollars.
“Many businesses believe that government regulations require them to attend expensive party training programs for their workforce. This can be prohibitively expensive and very inefficient,” says Tom Wilkerson, founder of CertifyMe.net. “We offer training program tools to seasoned forklift operators that ‘trains the trainer’ how to instruct new operators. The package includes everything needed, including certificates and certification wallet cards showing compliance with OSHA standards. In many cases, this creates an even safer workplace environment because the forklift trainers are actually well acquainted with the specific equipment and unique workplace in which the operators will be functioning. Each piece of equipment has its own nuances and every workplace has its own potential hazards. We recognize it is safest, most efficient, and most cost effective to utilize a businesses existing employee expertise to benefit the workplace.”
The program, which is available at http://www.CertifyMe.net, costs as low as $49.95 per trained employee. The robust program is self-paced and offers opportunity to train employees whenever and wherever it is most effective for the employer and staff. The program typically will be utilized at the specific workplace, allowing trainers to highlight unique safety hazards and conditions of the business. In addition the program offers equipment-specific training for different makes and models of the heavy equipment being used.
When completed, the program provides all required proof of safety training that OSHA requires, including certificates and compliance cards for employees.
